Congratulations!  You’ve secured an interview with the fellowship program or employer you’ve had your eye on for a while. You’ve met their technical requirements, but now you have to ensure you stand out from the pack to land that coveted position.

Setting yourself apart is possible, but it requires some work on your end, Fred Lee, MD, professor of radiology and biomedical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said at RSNA 2015.

“You need to be able to tell your story in two to three minutes,” he said. “Tell a bit about your background and who you are. What makes you unique?”

Once you perfect your personal story, there are many other ways you can prepare and optimize the time you have with a potential employer.

What Interviewers Look For
In addition to someone with strong radiological skills, employers are looking for someone who can integrate easily with their department or practice, Lee said. They’re looking for someone whose personality will fit the office culture – someone with whom they can be friends.

“Watch out for offices that have a flock mentality, though,” he said. “You want a workplace that still offers diversity of thought and background.”
